Hit making producer Bangladesh isn’t making any new friends in the industry. The Grammy winner is taking shots at none other than Swizz Beatz. Bangladesh claims Swizz isn’t relevant to today’s music scene.
The subject of relevance came up during an interview between Bangladesh and XXL Magazine. The “A Milli” beatsmith said Swizz Beatz wasn’t relevant because relevance has something to do with being youthful. Bangladesh explained Swizz Beatz isn’t as youthful as he would like the public to believe. “I don’t think Swizz is relevant,” the Young Money affiliate said.

Bangladesh went on to bring Alicia Keys into the mix, opining Alicia Keys is the one who gives Swizz the little bit of relevance he has now. “I think there’s a difference between relevance and musical relevance. You married a lady that’s poppin’ [Alicia Keys], you know it’ll give you a lot of relevance, but you gotta make hits. Ain’t no hits. Are you relevant for the craft you’re doing or the life you live as far as the decisions you make?”
Bangladesh concluded his thoughts by saying he was more relevant because he can relate to music’s youth. “The relevance is in being youthful. Still being in-the-know. I have a 15 year old son so they think we’re brothers and I put him on to stuff. You know, I’m 34 but people tell me I look 23. He still look to me for information. Usually it’s the opposite; usually the parents are lame or too old to understand or whatever. Just the way I feel, I got so much more time.”
What are your thoughts about Bangladesh’s comments? Is Bangladesh just talking reckless because he is experiencing success now?
